birth story

“My babies don’t drop until they drop.” I wish I would have counted the number of times I said that sentence while pregnant with Avery. I said it every time someone said, “You’re carrying so high!” Or, “You still haven’t dropped!” (And they clearly thought I should have by then.) And every appointment those final […]

milk supply and sleep

I still remember the first time my oldest slept through the night. It was actually a total fluke (she was 8ish weeks old) and she didn’t do it again until she was 10 months old and we sleep trained. BUT I vividly remember waking up that morning and my boobs HURT. They were so full […]

“Never wake a sleeping baby.” My guess is that most of you have heard this piece of advice at one time or another, and if you haven’t, you just wait! While I certainly don’t enjoy waking up a sleeping child, sometimes it’s necessary for the sake of other naps or overnight sleep. So in this […]

birth story

I have always loved all things babies, birth, pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting. I was 5 when my youngest sister was born, and stepped in in every way in attempt to be her “second mom.” I loved watching  A Birth Story on TLC in middle school and high school.

bedtime routine

When I was first told 3.5 years ago that I should establish a nap and bedtime routine with my baby girl, I was a little overwhelmed. What would we do? What song should we sing? Would this really matter for a newborn? What if we somehow messed it up? So Jason and I chatted through […]

dream feeding

If you’re a new or seasoned mom, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of dream feeding. To be honest, I had heard the term when my oldest was born, but I really didn’t understand what it meant. So let’s talk the ins and outs of dream feeding! In this post I will walk through: What […]

road trips with kids

Road trips with kids…even though we’ve done it several times, it’s still feels like quite the ordeal each time. And planning them is one thing I’m pretty Type A about, but it’s certainly worked to our advantage. Our trips definitely don’t always go according to plan, which is to be very expected, but being prepared […]
